This was our first time staying at a bed and breakfast so we weren't exactly sure what to expect. We stayed at Bowman's to celebrate our 4th wedding anniversary and the weekend couldn't have been more perfect. David and Nancy make you feel like you are family from the moment you drive up to their beautiful property. We stayed in the Garden Cottage which I highly recommend. The cottage comes equipped with a big comfortable bed, a large jacuzzi, a little kitchenette with items such as a microwave, a mini fridge, some silverware, a wine bottle opener, etc., a very comfortable love seat, a TV with Directv and a little electric fireplace. We brought our 17 month old daughter with us and there was plenty of room to set up her pack n' play at night for her to sleep in.
We stayed for 2 nights. The first morning we were the only guests so we were able to eat breakfast in the dining room with David and Nancy. The breakfast was delicious and plentiful. Nancy even prepared a separate plate for our daughter. The hosts were easy to talk to and gave us plenty of suggestions on what to do that day in the Dells. The second morning there were other guests so they asked us if it was okay to bring breakfast to us since we had our daughter with us. We were perfectly fine with this and thought it was awful nice of them to accommodate to people visiting with kids and those who were trying to get away from kids for the weekend. The cream filled pumpkin muffins and fruit smoothies at breakfast were amazing. They also had the best sausage I have ever had in my life.
Overall I would definitely recommend Bowman's to anyone who wants to get away for a little while for some good ol' rest and relaxation. The bed and breakfast has a perfect location that is a quick 5 minute drive to all the attractions of the dells but is far away enough that it is peaceful and quiet. They also have two cute little dogs that our daughter really enjoyed playing with. We will definitely stay here again in the future.
